I wonder why the market is happy this guy is gone. What was he doing wrong? I don't personally use pandora but it seems like a lot of people are happy with it.

Very often a change in leadership when a company hasn't been posting profits for a while (or ever) is perceived as a positive outlook and shares rise on such news.

Other players, like Spotify or Slacker are not under such scrutiny, except to their discreet investors.
